very welcome you're watching r.t. international with me karen well this weekend marks the one attending the french capital alone so far police have now evacuated the square in paris where the main rally was unraveling earlier one journalist also suffered facial injuries during the protests are to easy enough was that among the crowds. it is not a war zone it is the french capital this is placid it's ellie and initially the protests here the yellow vests protest here it was sanctioned it was it was authorized by the by the local government by the municipality but now you can clearly see that they have revoked that permission and the police they have been moving in trying to disperse the protest now as the police has lately become more aggressive they've been using an extensive amount of tear gas they have been using flash bangs as well to disperse the crowds now for instance what i'm holding right
4:02 pm
now this is one of the canisters from from the tear gas launched by the police at the protesters it's things like these there are hundreds of these carried all over this square now some people have been injured and we saw at least 2 people with blood on their faces probably with busted noses some people have been passing out because of the sheer amount of tear gas in the air and the police now as you can see they're using water cannons to disperse the crowd to disperse this protest it makes it really difficult to breathe so you can see all of the people with the breast paraders like these with masks like these because well they came prepared they've been saying that their strength is a in numbers and b. in the fact that they don't have an organizing body so they can organize a sporadic protest in any parts of paris to which the police would have to
4:03 pm
eventually respond but this has been so far the most massive the most violent protest in paris to date now this is a symbolic of course this is a symbolic date. this is a symbolic day for the protesters because it's the one year anniversary weekend so they're kind of celebrating in their own way and for them it's it's a message they're sending a message that one year on the yellow 1st movement is still here it hasn't gone anywhere and it does not intend to. but what's the general feeling about the ongoing protests in france but according to the latest poll more than half of those surveyed still support the yellow vests or 63 percent say they don't want the rallies to begin in earnest again so dubinsky looks back now at 12 months of protests. france once revolutionary now a catalyst for a few years populist movements in a country where protests is in the blood and over the last year
4:04 pm
a nation defensiveness against the yellow vests paris landmarks of triumph are left defaced and its iconic streets smashed and looted it even left the most jaded well shocked. my corner it come to power with his own no idea of a french revolution it was one of reform he would not to fall on his sword as others before him by not giving in to protest movements but even he was forced into a treat the primed carbon tax hike was abandoned he opened a state purse to boost low income households back or even he said he was there

4:06 pm
attacked by tear gas and police battles to discourage to try to discredit the movement by showing images of burning trash cans and cars and also to make sure that the rest of the population don't join the movement they go to the police don't understand anything the government tells them money but instead of marching with us they hear the protesters. what you're looking at the violence made a big impression on me that the police against our guys i've been to every protest in paris and i saw things i should never have seen people were hit in the back for the forces of peace in order they have been left scarred by the pilot yes there was a police car we had been this huge protestors and that type of fire inside it there the french but it's very very close to use their weapons to get out there was a lot of the tee off there was a charge of police officer so there are they were exhausted and they were there was

4:11 pm
people of 40 percent of the kountry and this conservative forces which have organized because we did know that in order to give is that belittling you does new government they have to put the indigenous people protest out of the streets they need to control indigenous people they need to violate their rights in order to give recreate the stability to the new government. a former u.s. ambassador to ukraine who was a key witness in the trump impeachment inquiry has said she has no evidence that the president engaged in criminal activity in ukraine but we have an i was question during the 2nd opening pitchman terry. do you have any information regarding the president tonight is states accepting any groups. now do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the president of the united states
4:12 pm
has been involved with out all. now and this kind of open now reports there could be some impeachment for taking cabs audience numbers flat in comparison to the trump scandals. as impeachment inquiry hearings against donald trump continue on capitol hill the new star witness is marine given of it and she is a former u.s. ambassador to ukraine who was removed from her post 6 months ago now donald trump definitely does not hold her in high esteem that's what he actually tweeted during her testimony every whim or even though of it when turned bad she started off in somalia how did that go then fast forward to ukraine with a new ukrainian president spoke on favorite billy about her in my 2nd phone call with him it is a u.s. president's absolute right to appoint ambassador has now she testified that she was not part of the biden family scandal regarding natural gas in ukraine and furthermore she was not part of any effort to leak information from ukraine during
4:13 pm
the 2016 election furthermore she testifies that donald trump is intimidating her and that he's responsible for all the wrongdoing and so is vladimir putin well i mean president putin must have been aware that there were concerns in the u.s. about russian meddling in the 2016 elections and what the potential was for russian meddling in the future. you know classic for an intelligence officer to try to throw off the scent and you know create an alternative narrative that maybe might get picked up and get some credence yes fitting in the name of the russian president is what you do if you want to catch a headline and the media is keeping up the hype the calm before the impeachment storm washington is bracing for a blockbuster day washington on edge all day for this 2nd day of impeachment hearings it was a story day on capitol hill with the 1st public impeachment hearing of president
4:14 pm
tonight history of the hill those house democrats make their case against president an attempt to remove the president of the united states from office now you would think that that would be front headline news but in. the u.s. public really interested not too much 13000000 americans watched the 1st round of testimony according to the nielsen ratings now that's one in 20 certainly sounds like a lot but compare that to when former f.b.i. director james coleman got up to testify about how he was fired by donald trump 20000000 americans watch that that's roughly the same number as tuned in when brett kavanaugh was being confirmed as a supreme court justice amid sexual assault allegations you would expect americans to be glued to their t.v. screens now there is an actual impeachment inquiry open after all articles of impeachment could be drawn up the senate could be faced with the choice of whether or not to convene an impeachment trial and the stakes are significantly higher but the american public seems far less interested i wonder how many americans know or
4:15 pm
even care about the key witnesses you never heard of the mastery of on a bitch have you ever heard of george can't. are you watching the trumpet pietschmann inquiry hearings on t.v. . does it interest you at all. why do you think you are americans are trying to watch the speech because it's it's a fluke easy yeah sure it's fake you know when they get to 3 years and she's coming to power if you like a good one for the party after all the way it's going on and the thing you have. this is a big colossal waste of time. and reject the bread here it was more so like you know sensitive to the public and this one is just everybody is either this or they're so yes it seems that the donald trump is a bad guy a show has been airing from capitol hill for a few seasons already but americans are now yawning and saying haven't we seen this episode before. artsy new york legally media analyst jennifer
4:16 pm
says the drop in interest on 20 comes in handy for us democrats. the american public i think the public in general is getting bored with some of the narratives that have been pushed against donald trump have been shown to either be completely false or unfounded in facts but there are some important things that have come out one of those i think is that is the fact that well what for one thing she didn't have any firsthand knowledge of what this is about and she wasn't even in her post for several months and so the fact that she was there was just to showcase her as somebody who could say things that would maybe paint on a trumpet a light i think a lot of this has really been planned i mean after that you know these hearings started out with 45 minutes of the democrats of adam schiff and the democratic attorney being able to question her and again when we hear these questions what is this is just praising her and talking about her heroic life story and her parents after that they're supposed to be there is theoretically generally a 5 minute recess or a break which turned into 3040 minutes and even if you were as it were turned in at
4:17 pm
the outset would have just tuned our become bored with that and but what the democrats in the house have done is completely turn it on turn it on its head they think the public is dumb they think the american people are dumb and so they just keep saying these things they're making up their own elements of legal facts that are absolutely already solidified within the american justice system. head on on the cloak takes to facebook dominance of pleasure media a false lashes out at the competition they change about. you know world of big part of the lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past
